12:14 pm
in coal country. you see the signs around him and he's been speaking to some miners, one man has been a miner safely as he put it for 68 years. so we'll listen to abington, virginia. >> since 2014, 200,000 jobs. and the senator brought up a fact and a couple folks brought this up and it's a fact nobody's heard, but enduring times of national problems where we're talking about the defense of our country, having those minds and having that potential energy source available to usa an awfully important thing. it's an awfully important thing and nobody thinks in terms of that. they don't think in terms of that, and i fully understand that. but it's been an honor. we just met with some of the folks.
12:15 pm
senator representatives from every aspect of the business, right? and it was amazing. it was really amazing. these are great people. they're great americans. they love this country and if i get in, i mean, you know, it's -- if i get in, this is what it is. okay? [ cheers and applause ] and other forms of energy. all forms of energy. but what they've done to the miners is incredible and the obama administration, and you remember, and i think you might have just seen it. you know what they've done and nobody knows clean coal, nobody knows why. look at what's happening with china, the amount of energy they're producing and what they're using coal for. tremendous amounts of -- just tremendous. it's like incredible. and they're not cleaning it. believe me, they're not cleaning it. we have a small -- a very, very
12:16 pm
small planet compared to the universe, right? and that stuff is going up and they're not cleaning it and here we produce great stuff and we're not allowed to use it and it's getting worse and worse. so they're going to be out of business soon, hillary clinton will be worse than obama. you know it. she'll be worse. don't forget when she made the statement, going to put the mines and miners essentially out of business, and i guess she forgot about west virginia, right? she was going to west virginia. she forgot about virginia, too, in all fairness. [ cheers and applause ] she should west virginia right after -- a short time after that, and do you remember when she went into west virginia, she met with that wonderful family, and the man, the miner for many years, and he was trying to explain to her, and she was
12:17 pm
trying to say, well, you know, i really want to keep -- she was grabbling. she didn't know what to say. i don't think he was going to be easily convinced, do we agree? because she said it. just like she said it was a mistake, that she's going to raise taxes in the middle class. you saw that one? nah, maybe she misspoke. we have to give them a break, but it did come out awfully loud and clear. i don't know. hey, look, hopefully it won't matter. hopefully it's not going to matter. [ applause ] . but what i told the folks before we were over in peterbilt, the plant -- incredible -- but what i told the folks before is that you have to get out and vote. because you know, the miners to a certain extent, they're so down and they've been treated so badly, that they haven't been
12:18 pm
voting. they haven't been going out and voting like they can, and that includes members of their family that have left the mining business, members of the family -- they've left coal. they've left everything and they've gone into something else and that's fine, that's great, but they live in virginia, and they vote and their parents are still in the coal world where they want to be, and that's where they want to be. but everybody has to get out and vote. if you get out and vote, we're pretty close in virginia, and she's spending a fortune on ads. a friend of mine can't see television without anti-trump ads and my friend said they're not true. i could go over those ads one by one and show you the -- it's fraudule fraudulent, actually. she's spending wall street money on ads and it's just one, after another, and this guy kidding three said, i just want to see one ivory soap ad, one, just a break-in and we haven't spent
12:19 pm
anything yet. we will be, because we're doing well. but we haven't spent anything yet. we're holding it. but it's really -- it's really a shame that they can say whatever they want to say. they try and demean and defame and then you look at what she's doing with her e-mails. 33,000 missing e-mails. [ crowd chanting "lock her up" ] it's very sad and yesterday i guess 1,000 came out or something, some fairly vast number. i want to see the ones -- what i really would like to see, we have to see the 33,000. you can imagine? remember she said, i think it was for her wedding, the wedding of chelsea, and it was the yoga classes, 33,000 e-mails.
12:20 pm
that's a lot of yoga. that's a lot of yoga. but a couple of very bad ones came out and it's called pay for play, and some of these were really, really bad and illegal, if it's true. you're paying and you're getting things. i watched yesterday, because of the apprentice, blagojevich, 14 years in jail. look at what she's done. she's running for president, but it came out that her people, pay for play and very big stories today, the problem is, it will be big stories for about two minutes and they're going to drop it because the media is so totally dishonest. [ cheers and applause ]
12:21 pm
if that were me -- if that were me, the story that just came out this morning -- and really, hidden from some of the major newspapers, hidden -- if that were me, that would be the biggest story in the history of the papers. they'd go quadruple spacing, but with her, it's just terrible. some of them covered it big league, but some of them are just refusing to really report the facts and i think it's going to get worse and worse though because i assume more stuff will come out. but this was big stuff. pay for play. it's illegal. i mean, it's illegal, and we'll see what happens with it, folks. we'll see what happens. but it's very serious stuff. it's very, very serious. i don't know that it can be any more serious than deleting or getting rid of 33,000 e-mails on all of the things, the server, which you're not allowed to
12:22 pm
have, the information gotten off that server by who knows who. probably many people. many countries potentially, secretary of state, to put us all in that position. so i think it's a very sad thing and they give her a pass on everything. give her a pass. it's so sad when i watch that, and it was point, after point, after point, and everybody was saying, wow, they're really going to do it. and then they go, however, as soon as i heard -- when you hear the word "however," but it's just -- it's so incredible that a thing like that can what happened. so let's see what happens. in the meantime, we're doing very well. you saw the polls have really tightened up a lot. i think we're going to have a great victory. i really feel it. [ cheers and applause ]
12:23 pm
one of the things i suggested is your ballots, you go and sign, do it early so you don't have to -- because on november 8th, we have our big day and if you go sign -- we have some people in the room that i met before that are going to be pushing hard, but put in your ballots. they have certain requirements and you live by those requirements perfectly. make sure they don't lose your ballot, make sure they don't lose your vote, which i'm sure eye ju -- i just left a great place, north carolina. they lost voter id. you mean you don't have to show identification, you don't have to show, that, hey -- and then i've been talking about the rigged system and i get hammered for talking about -- i can't believe he'd be talking about the rigged system and in the meantime, voter id you don't have to do and i'm sure none of those folks would be voting ten times a day.
12:24 pm
i'm sure. and really a big part of the rigged system is the press itself. because they can take a little story, that isn't a story and make it into a big deal, happen so much. it happens so much. and speaking of that, remember this we have so many things that we have to protect in this country. we have to protect our second amendment, which is under siege. [ applause ] >> remember that. it's under siege. thank you. thank you. we have to -- you know, i see -- and by the way, we have a lot of unof unity in the republican party, but nobody talks about it. one senator said we're not voting for trump. some people have been beaten so
12:25 pm
badly they just can't get -- and i understand that. i can see how that could happen. they've won throughout their lives politically, and they lose an a election by a lot to a guy that never ran before, okay? i never ran before, never thought i'd be doing it this time, but i watch what's going on, and i say, it's time. it's time. boy, is it time, right? you know, you look at the iran deal. how about the $400 million in cash? how about that? how about that? the 400 million. do you know what that is? does anybody know what that would look like? 400 million. did you see iran? actually finally did do what i thought they were going to do, they released pictures because they want to embarrass the united states, just like they took the ten sailors and they made us look so bad. they made us look so bad. it was a humiliation of our
12:26 pm
country, okay? this is horrible. and then we keep going and going and you saw what their so-called leader, somebody would say the supreme leader. i refuse to use that term. president obama would say "the supreme leader." what is going on, folks? what is going on with our leaders, and with our leader in particular? he's grossly incompetent, okay? [ cheers and applause ] grossly incompetent. so, $400 million in cash going, it happened to be the same day as the hostages were released. the hostages were in the airport for massive amounts of time. i mean, just one of them said they wouldn't let us go because they were waiting for a certain plane to come in, and i just can't imagine what was on that plane, right? we can't imagine. sure it had nothing to do with
12:27 pm
the $400 million. but isn't that unbelievable and then he'll stand up and he'll say, that one thing had nothing to do with the other. and they're practically eye gue -- i guess you could say there's 1% or 2% chance he was right. they're saying -- they're waiting for something else on a plane to come in and they were at the airport forever. and they say president obama said, no, this had nothing to do with the hostages. and you know if you remember with obamacare, he said you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor, he said it how many times, 28 or something? many democrats approved that. we're going to repeal it and replace it. but many, many democrats, membership, many democrats would
12:28 pm
not have -- won by almost nothing, the margin was almost nothing and the democrats approved it. with the doctor and the plan and over and over again a lot of pressure put on and it's out of control. premiums are going up, at a rate that nobody has ever seen before. you know, in texas, through blue cross blue shield, they just had almost a 50% increase. and they -- the big increase is now going to come on november 1st and they're trying to delay it until after the election. because it is catastrophic. it is going to be an increase like never before. i'm hearing numbers that i don't even want to say because the press will say, that's terrible, he exaggerated. it's going to be election-changing and we can't let those numbers be released on another date sometime after the
12:29 pm
election because it will show what a total disaster obamacare is, so important. so i just say to all of the politicians and you great congressman -- where is he, by the way? congressman, stand up. stand up. [ cheers and applause ] vote for him. he's our guy. senator, stand up, senator, come on, senator. [ cheers and applause ] we have great people here. so right now, they're swimming up hill, but with trump we'll be just sliding beautifully down. it will be a whole different field. it will be a whole different field and it can happen quickly. we discussed that. we had a big meeting and it doesn't need to go through congress and doesn't need to go through lots of different things. epas, very important what they've done. and we want -- everybody agrees, we want clean air and clean water. do we agree?
12:30 pm
i want it. so, i very much appreciate the meeting. i just want to say that virginia has lost one in three manufacturing jobs since nafta, signed by bill clinton. nafta is a disaster. it's been a disaster not only for virginia, but for every -- virtually every state. upstate new york, it looks like a war zone. that's why i won so much. and i got the upstate vote in numbers that nobody's seen before. upstate new york, you go to new england, you see the factories, these beautiful old factories that you see were once thriving, thousands and thousands of people working and those people now are doing part-time jobs. they're working two jobs, making less money than they made 18 years ago. i don't know if you saw that statistic where people -- and people in this room, too, people
12:31 pm
are making less money now in real wages than they made 18 years ago and even longer and they've gotten older and they're working harder. not supposed to be that way, but i've gotten older and i'm working harder, too, to be honest. i didn't need this. i could have enjoyed myself a lot. we're all getting older and we're working hard. it's supposed to be the other way, right? we're getting older and starting to relax. i don't know if i like that. i love what i'm doing. i have been all over this country. we have the greatest people, anywhere in the world, the greatest people. and i have the greatest, most loyal supporters, and the smartest. they always like to demean everything. they try and demean supporters, they're always trying to put
12:32 pm
little shots, boom, boom, boom. we've got the smartest, the hardest working, the best people. they like to demean, but we have amazing people. i've seen this all over the country. and we can start making apple computers in our country, okay, foxe folks? we can do it. we go to china and think of the shipping cost. how many of a difference. we can -- you've been to all the different states and you'll get the good deal from somebody. just keep it in our country. when they close plants and move to mexico, and then a company builds in mexico, whatever product they're making and they think they're going to sell the product back into the united states, all of their people have been fired, every single one of them and they're using people from another nation to make the same product and you know what, they think they're going to sell it across our border, which will become a very powerful, strong border. it's no longer going to be a
12:33 pm
piece of swiss cheese. and they think -- they think they're going to sell it across the border, no tax, no nothing, sell it to wherever it came from, let the people that got laid off buy it and now maybe they're unemployed and maybe working two making less. it's not going to happen, folks. i guess you could say it's stupid. they're controlled by special interes interests. when you see companies moving over to mexico and other places, they're controlled by special interests. they're controlled by lobbyists, they're controlled by their donors who have big chunks or own the whole company. these aren't stupid people, our politicians. for, but we have a genius right over here, that's all i care about. some are because a lot of them are controlled because that's
12:34 pm
the way the system works. a friend asked me, how did a deal like this get approved, it's impossible. he said how is it possible? and he's a little naive and i said it's possible because that company has total control over the politicians that have to approve. now, i spent like over $50 million, substantially over $50 million in the primaries, my own money. i spent a lot of money now in the general election and i'm spending a lot of money for myself. we're getting a lot of money. don't waiforget, i have to give. we have a lot of small donors. $61, i think average, who raised millions of dollars. in june, we raised $51 million of which, like, $27 million was small donors. $27 million.
12:35 pm
[ cheers and applause ] and last month we raised $82 million of which much of it was small. i love the small donations to me the best, and so i'm spending a lot of money for myself, raising a lot of money for the republican party, but the beautiful thing is the people that are giving those small dollar donations, $61 average because those people are invested in a campaign they want to get out and vote 100%. they get out there and they vote and it's so important. then a republican generally -- do you know who had it? bernie sanders had it. he raised a lot of money with that. and we have a different side of the ledger. we have the same thing. people are shocked. newspapers that hate me, that hate me, they were very nice about it. the month before, we didn't raise mnothing. once we started, we started in
12:36 pm
june and i think we did 51 million and then 82 million and very good numbers coming in again. so we're equipped. we have to get the people out to vote, but we're going to do a job for you and you're going to be really happy in virginia, okay? and i'm not only talking, by the way. i'm not only talking about the miners. i'm talking about the whole state because virginia's lost one in three manufacturing jobs, right, since nafta signed by bill clinton. didn't hurt him, it hurt every other president, where the country emptied out without an agreement to sign the existing u.s. trade deficit with tpp, transspecifi trans pacific partnerpartnershi. nafta is the worst economic deal ever signed by any other country in the world, that's how bad it
12:37 pm
is. and as part of my platform, i made a speech that said we're going to renegotiate nafta. they said suppose we don't renegotiate and i said that's okay, we're out of it. it's such a perfect story. i could hire a consulting firm, pay them millions, and they'll tell me what's going on with her and mexico and the different places, but i have a friend who builds plants. i said how you doing, he said unbelievable. i said great, it's going well in the united states. he's a u.s. guy. he love this is country. he said, no, it's going unbelievable in mexico. he said we're building some of the greatest plants in the world. he called it the eighth wonder of the world. he said mexico is the eighth wonder of the world. i said how about here? he said not so good. he's an american guy. he wants to build here. but i think he's the biggest in the world at plants or just one of them.
12:38 pm
but he builds plants and can't believe what's going on in mexico. >> so donald trump'
